Now in its second decade of vintages, the Red Winemaking Trial Shiraz has become an established part of the Penfolds heirarchy. the RWT foregoes the power and muscle of many a Barossa Shiraz, and opts for a more accessible style, showing off a voluptuous body of fleshy fruit, with fine yet opulent tannins. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz RWT Barossa Valley has a youthfully mute blackberry and black cherry-scented nose with hints of cedar, toast, cracked pepper and Provence herbs. While the oak is still standing out slightly in the mouth, this is backed up by tons of rich, seductive, mouth-coating fruit and firm, rounded tannins, with just enough acid in the very long finish.
